The Address Position

What can we learn from the address position of a great player such as Curtis Strange ? (pictured above)  For starters Strange has set himself up in a nice balanced orientation- especially with the width of his stance. 

With a driver the stance should be wide enough so if we drew a line down from each shoulder that line would drop down to the ground very close to the insides of the feet. That is the stance width necessary to remain in balance once the club starts moving up and around the body with motion.

The last time the US Open was held at Torrey Pines was 2008. The victor? None other than Tiger Woods.

Playing with a stress fracture in his left leg Tiger summoned all his courage and resolution to do the remarkable- willing his ball into the hole from all kinds of weird and wonderful places. No more lasting image is more memorable than his jubilation in holing a 12 foot birdie putt on the 72nd green.

Despite all his antics of chip ins and long sweeping putts finding the bottom of the cup throughout the tournament it still came down to him having to make just one more putt to tie Rocco Mediate on the very last hole. And in the words of commentator Dan Hicks when the ball bounced along the imperfect grass and slid into the right edge to complete the tie “Expect anything different”…we all came to know one more time that Tiger Woods was anything but normal

Ben Hogan, the man and his image has been wrapped up in mysterious shroud of mystery for well over half a century.

Some would call him blunt and aloof. Others insist once you knew him he was friendly and mischievous. No two people are alike so copying Hogan the person has been left alone.

Copying Hogan's dress sense is a little more fashionable and attainable. Copying Hogan's golf swing has been a quest for thousands with a success rate of next to nothing.

Why?

Walk into any pro shop around the world.

Walk into the office of any golfing nut.

I wouldn't hesitate to argue that the image above- Ben Hogan's historic second shot to the 72nd hole of the 1950 US Open at Merion- would adorn the wall of fifty percent of those venues.

I love everything about this photo.

My third and most recent book is now available. Ben Hogan- The Secrets To His Success is a must have for the golf swing fan and especially the Hogan fan.

I dive deep into the "secrets" of Hogan's swing to show the reader what Hogan set out to explain in his book The Five Lessons. And also relay key aspects he left out of the discussion.

Learn from the drawings in his book and why the grip, the hip action and the swing plane have been misinterpreted by so many people to the detriment of their game.

You may not look like Hogan when you swing but you will come to understand the dynamics of motion that can produce Hogan like laser shots more often.

126 pages full of Hogan's secrets and a roadmap for each golfer to understand the golf swing and their own swing to a higher level.
